I'm working on a couple of pages that look like this: [URL] As the visitor mouses over the month name, the image to the right is supposed to change to show the cover of that month's magazine issue. The onmouseover/onmouseout code has been working fine for months, but I recently added a couple new JS elements to the page, and now when the visit stops hovering over Sep/Oct, the image doesn't change.
I'm thinking that the way to fix this is by converting this action to jQuery, which is loaded on the page anyway, but I'm struggling to get a concise expression of what I want to happen. That is, I can do it by brute force with dozens of lines of code, but there must be a better way.
It appears to me, from experimenting with IE6 and Moz 5, that the event is generated *only* on the lowest element, thus given a table which contains tbody, tr and tds, with an onmouseover listener assigned to the table element (as a property), the onmouseover event is generated only for the td, although the mouse actually entered all these elements.
If there is a slight gap between elements you sometimes get events for the higher element. I guess this is a side-effect of the browser's implementation - sampling the mouse position.
This is probably very simple but I really cant find the answer. I have a text box, and I am wanting the same mouseover and onclick functionality as Money Supermarket; [URL]... When I rollover the text box/table row then I want the area to display one colour and when I roll off then it goes back to normal. However, when I click on it I also want it to display the colour and remain that way until I click another element. How do I achieve this?
I have a menu with a div displaying onmouseover, and hiding onmouseout, it works great except in IE if I click on the <select> tag, it triggers the mouseout event, interestingly enough the same does not happen when I click on a text field..
This is obviously not the real code, it's just to give you an idea, I don't think I can post the real code, cuz it's really long and complicated...
I'm using the prototype framework, and I'd like to keep it that way if possible...
Here's my guidelines...
The hearing aid has three switches. An image is created for each switch being selected. (3 images) The first switch is the off button or stops any sound playing when selected. The second switch upon selection plays a sound file of somebody talking. The third switch upon selection plays a sound file of the same person talking but also with background noise. A polygon area has been created for each switch as part of an image map. (3 areas)When a switch is selected (let's say switch 1), the other switch areas upon mouse rollover are highlighted in yellow (either switch area 2 or switch area 3) but the switch that was selected (switch 1) doesnt change upon mouse rollover. So this had me create 2 more images per switch displaying the switch selected and the two other areas highlighted. In total this is 9 images.(3 imaged per switch + (3switches * 2 switch areas highlighted) = 9).
The image names are as followed HearingAid(switch number)(nothing,a, or ) corresponding which switch is highlighted; a being bottom most switch area different than switch that's selected and b being top most switch area. So they are HearingAid1.png, HearingAid1a.png, HearingAid1b.png HearingAid2.png, HearingAid2a.png, HearingAid2b.png, HearingAid3.png, HearingAid3a.png, HearingAid3b.png.
The original image will change to the appropriate image out of the 9 images I created based upon left clicking an area to select the switch and mousing over other switches which are then highlighted.
My first problems from my first few attempts was that when I selected a different switch from the original off switch, my onmouseout for all switch areas was programmed to revert to the original off switch image and not the image I selected. So I thought I needed to dynamically change those attribute values to new ones every time I selected a new switch. I couldn't find anything in my research that would help me since I tried a lot of things and saw them all fail when testing them out.
My latest attempt I thought had the most potential but it seems like the onclick attribute is working at all. I can't figure out why either.
I'm using code below to run a function when the user move the mousepointer from within a DIV and outside it:The idea is that that mousepointer motion shall hide the DIV.
document.getElementById(theID).onmouseout = hideDiv; if (document.getElementById(theID).captureEvents) document.getElementById(theID).captureEvents(Event.MOUSEOUT);
It kind of works, but the problem is that if I move the mousepointer to fast out of the DIV then it will not trigger.The div in question has some elements within it, and originally it was allmost fully covered by those element... and then the onmouseout did not work that good....So I had to create some padding for the div to make it detect the onmouseout better... kind of work... but sometimes failes to trigger on the onmouseout.That padding also make the div not look that good ... so would like to get rid of all the padding as well, and make it work, if possible.I have tested this in the following browsers and get pretty much same behaviour in them all:IE8, Firefox (latest), Chrome (latest), Safari for win (latest beta)...
I've been going out of my mind trying to get this to work, and now I'm out of time! It seems like it *SHOULD* be simple! All I am trying to do is get all of the <li> items that belong to a particular UL ID, and change the class name onmouseover. I've cut down the code to bare-bones to try and isolate the problem. I can get it to work if I use unique IDS for each list element, but that seems silly. The latest piece of code I am working with:
what I want to do is create a menu with rollover buttons but each button also changes the background image of a div.
I've managed to change the colour of the div but not add an image there. I've added my code so you can have a look. Case 0 shows me attempting to change the background image. I must be doing something wrong.
I've left the other cases as colours so you can see how I did that. I eventually want it all to be images. I'm creating a Joomla website (not sure if that makes a difference).
I am trying to change a piece of text using onmouseover. I have tried a few things so far and nothing has really worked. I get get a new piece of text to appear but bastardizing someone elses code, but can't figure out how to hide the other one....
I sort of have the following but don't know if this is close to the best way of doing it really...
Basically I want to have a piece of text, lets say TEXT1, that changes from blue to red, and to TEXT2 while the mouse is over it.
I know nothing really about Java so have had a look around but got no futher....
I am trying to create a rollover on a stock index graph when I rollover one of three geographic areas (Americas, Asia, Europe) on a separate image . So far I have been only able to create the rollover for the separate countries, without the second image.
I want the text and bg colors of the 'retail' fields to change color when the mouse rolls over a certain button on the page... i have onmouseover="document.getElementById('retail')className('highlight')" in the <td> of the button so it works but it doesnt highlight the second instance of 'retail'...
not really used to java but have an image map with about 90 hotspots. All i want to do is simply change the color of a hotspot when the mouse rolls over.I have really only been able to find solutions for introducing images on mouse over.
I know I could add onmouseover events to each li item and changing the src of the category. But Im trying to find a better solution. And I think I should be able to use document.getElementById(id).onmouseover = function() for that.
